Where in the World ...

Before I got sidetracked by Chinese traffic circles (They were the bane of my driving existence in Washington D.C.), I had been looking at some sample pictures that came with my computer. They included the Taj Mahal, the Pyramids of Egypt, and the Eiffle Tower at night. I wouldn't be surprised if they were on your computer too.

Naturally, as I clicked through the pictures, I thought about how nice it would be to visit some of these places. Some of them, I've already been lucky enough to visit. But then I thought, Where would I like to go the most? Someplace I had never been before.

Since I got sidetracked on a Chinese traffic circle, you have probably already guessed that my special destination is in China. Since I did my senior thesis on 19th Century China, I have developed rather a soft spot for the place. 5,000 years of history before Europeans arrived and messed with it.

The Li River is especially attractive to me for some reason. I have seen it from time to time in films. I have never seen topography like this before. It seems so beautiful to me. I long to go there.

Here's where it is relative to the rest of the country.

So, where is the one place in the world ... someplace that you've never been before ... that you would like to go?


That's gorgeous.

One place . . . Paris? It's not an original answer, but it sounds lovely just now.

Today, my one place is the Normandy beaches. That should be expanded to include the WWII cemeteries.

Stacy: Paris may not be original, but it certainly has a lot of favorable endorsements! Sounds wonderful to me. :)

Travis: Certainly is a powerful place. Just thinking about it gives me chills.
